COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Long Trail Double IPA offers true reward to those seeking intensely sensual hop flaovor. Double IPA is a full-flavored ale featuring a good malt backbone combined with an aroma brimming with tantalizing citrus and pine notes. In search of inspiration within, the recipe is sourced from one of Long Trailís own, hop-enthusiast home brewers!

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Bomber. Pours a very light golden - light copper - initially very clear, towards the final pours gets cloudy from the massive yeast sediment on the bottom! Aroma is citrus, pine sap, needles, mango and slight alcohol and solvent. Flavor is peachy, mango, slight apple, citrus, grapefruit and pine with more solvent and a thinning alcohol. Good tacky bitterness- real clean and a bit of alcohol showing through since it is fairly thin- very low malt overall which is nice. Good DIPA.

22 oz. bomber at Flat Rock Saloon. Poured hazy orange with thin white head. Flavor was grassy with notes of lemon, orange, and grapefruit. Medium body. Nice IIPA.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Bomber- Pours a golden amber in color with a foamy whitish head that hung around and produced some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is medium of both citrus and pine hops as well has a hint of some maltiness underneath. Flavor is a nicely balanced mix of citrus/pine hops and caramel malts. Nice thick palate. Finish is hoppy and lingering. Mild sweetness within the finish. A very good effort from this brewer... Iíll find this one again!

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUN 13, 2009
(22 oz. bottle from Bootleggers) Pours quite cloudy goldish amber with about a finger and a half of off-white head that is fairly sturdy. Strong aroma of citrus and pine with some caramel underneath. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth but lightly pebbly with some stickiness in the finish. Very nice, sturdy patterns of lacing inside the snifter. Flavor of strong pine and citrus over caramel. Pretty nicely balanced, not out of control. Slightly sharp on the hops but not too bad. There is a sweaty quality which detracted a bit. ABV seems well-hidden. Pretty good big IPA.

notalush (4859) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Hey, thatís a nice-looking beer! - hazy glowing orange, with a thick, soapy, lasting head - resinous hop aroma, herbs, a light minty character, orange and lime - low carbonation, full in the mouth - strong hop bitterness on either end - semi-sweet honey and citrus fruits through the middle - some pineapple, mango, kaffir lime leaves - lingering grapefruit and earthy hop goodness - another great beer in this series.

[2126-20090502] 1pt6floz bottle. Sweet hops and mild citrus aroma with mild oil paints. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a long-lasting foamy off-white head and some lacing. Sweet hoppy grass and mild navel orange citrus flavour. Medium-full body. Nice and hoppy.

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2009
Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry, Garthicus, Blankboy, and GregClow, courtesy of Harry (and his 100th DIPA rating!). Medium yellow, medium white head. Great juicy fruity aroma. Great taste! Very hoppy, grapefruit pith linger. A very nice DIPA without much alcohol to comment on.
